The Nation’s Only Craft-Brewer Owned Cooperative
The Independent Brewers Alliance is a community of like-minded brewers who work together to save money on raw materials and operational expenses including cans and lids, bottles, kegs, cartons, freight, office supplies and payroll processing. We do it by leveraging the combined buying power of our brewers to negotiate long-term savings with leading industry suppliers. Brewers participate only in the savings programs that are right for their brewery. Brewers who join as Member-Owners can recoup their cost of membership and more with as little as one savings program. And brewers who join our Affiliate Program can save while paying no dues at all.
The IBA is currently accepting applications from qualified craft brewers. Feel free to explore this site and to contact us with any questions. If you’re ready to apply just fill out our no-obligation application.
What Our Brewers Say
“Our brewery has seen flat to declining sales and increasing costs. That’s where the IBA comes in. It’s negotiated pricing in a number of areas we could never have gotten on our own. The savings pay the cost of our membership many times over.
– Dan Barrett, Controller, Upland Brewing – 15,000 Barrel Brewery
“The IBA is saving us money on every can – money that we plow right back into our marketing program to keep our business strong and growing.”
– John Haggerty, Brew Master, Warped Wing Brewery – 8,000 Barrels
“With the IBA working on my behalf I now have buying power I could only dream of with my current barrelage. This takes the pressure off me to grow barrels to get better pricing.”
– Mike McGarvey, CEO and Founder, 3 Stars Brewing Company – 7,000 Barrels
